Me/Weather Channel | 8/29/12 | GeorgiaDawg32

Guy on the phone said this damage is equal to or greater than Katrina.

Stationary system, New Orleans getting clobbered. Rescues underway for people who "didn't have the time to get out".

Just read report that a levee south east of New Orleans was topped by the water and deep flooding in area. Had a look around at homes and topagraphy using Google maps and have to ask myself why someone would live below sea level with water on all sides.

When Katrina hit we had some FReepers giving us first hand info from FEMA sources. Anyone see a thread like that?

Good...Blame Obama.
People thought Bush was the devil that caused Katrina.
Now it is time to say that the almighty god Obumbo is out to destroy New Orleans.

Can we be sure that this event was not orchestrated by EVIL WHITE REPUBLICANS using the dreaded SILENT DYNAMITE?

Now the liberals don’t have the excuse of “Well, nobody could have evacuated a modern American city” because right next door is Texas. Texas successfully pulled off *the largest evacuation in human history* ahead of Hurricane Ike in 2008 and got everyone out who wanted to go. Over five million persons evacuated in seventy two hours. Everyone said it could never be done, and Texas did it - thus forever proving the “you can’t evacuate a city” myth false.

What’s their excuse this time?

“Blame Obama.”

With all the hate filled wishes that the ‘Obamanators’ aimed at Tampa it's interesting that Issac took an ‘unexpected’ turn. Looks like boomerang karma to me.

Sounds like Obama put the explosives in the same places Bush did—only the MSM will still blame Bush.

Crescent Citys am radio station WWL am 870 has been taking calls as they did during Katrina and once again most of those call are from folks living in areas who were told to evacuate but didn’t.

Mostly because they think someone else (got a mirror?) will bail them out.

Just now, Mayor Landreiu in a phone interview with local TV said an interior levee breached in Plaquamines Parish, not NOLA.

And so far, that has been what has happened. Subsidize a behavior, and you get more of it. Every time.

18 miles of levee in Plaquamines Parish have over-topped.

Emergency services have reported people trapped on roof tops, two pump operators went out onto a levee to find out why the pumps had stopped and had to be rescued by boat.

And the parish president predicted that some of his levees would be over-topped a couple of days ago. This morning, the Army Corps of Engineers was quick to claim it wasn’t one of THEIR levees. Guess all the money spent on rebuilding the levees in New Orleans didn’t make it down the river to Plaquamines Parish. Oh, that’s right...Louisiana is a red state, and I’m guessing that parish went for John McCain four years ago.

One of the unreported stories of the Obama years (among many) is his disdain for disaster victims in places that vote Republican. Remember the deadly flooding in Middle Tennessee a few years ago? More than 30 people died; the damage toll was in the billions and O couldn’t be bothered to visit the victims. He also refused disaster aid for Virginia after Governor McDonnell and his attorney general sued the feds over Obama Care.

Water is coming over the top of the levee south of N.O.

The levee has not been breached (torn, ruptured, resulting in gap). TWC’s use of this term is inaccurate and creating misunderstanding of the actual situation and problem.

A levee being overtopped with water and flooding the low side is bad enough, but a breach would result in a faster and larger scale catastrophic situation.

It’s Obama’s fault they didn’t have time to get out.

And how could a bankrupt government ever afford to properly improve and fix the levies.

This Hurricane is going to sit over South East Louisiana for much longer then Katrina. Seems to be double the time already, if I have to just flat out guess. He hardly moved during the night.

If people are too stupid and lazy to get an ID to vote, then an evacuation is certainly beyond their capabilities.

After Katrina, we had several church groups, (electricians, carpenters etc), head for N O to help with the clean up and rebuild. When they got there nothing was done and the residents just sat and watched. From that I don’t think N O is going to get much help from this corner of Illinois.

help with the clean up and rebuild

I had a buddy who did this as well. First day there, he said a bunch of perfectly able-bodied men sat in the shade and watched, while he and his team unloaded truckloads of water. When they were approached - if I know my buddy, it was "How about you guys get off your *** and help us", approximately - the people just laughed at him.

Next, my friends team pulled up stakes and moved to Mississippi, one of the guys had connections there. He said that they were already doing a good job of digging out, but appreciated the help nonetheless.

Thank God the recovery will now go better than it did the last time as they took our suggestion and got rid of the corrupt Levee Boards. /sarcasm

Nah!!! Looting Heineken beer and slugging through backwater is something Obama simply would not do.

He’d be sitting high and dry somewhere and have some Dem Flunky do it. He’d then complain about how the flunky got the bottles wet.

They will blame Jindal, instead of Obama, the DNC has all of their bases covered, and the willing media in their corner.

He also refused to declare Texas a disaster area after the fires here a couple of years ago.
